This mostly self-taught artist works in a variety of materials, such as: wood, metal, stone, marble and concrete, mainly utilizing reclaimed materials. Péwé’s innovative and unique works include a variety of large-scale works of art, ceramics, sculptures, marionettes, pen and ink drawings, and paintings. Over 25 works of mostly wood and metal sculptures will be on display, including several paintings.
“I’m interested in making objects that function in some way, but have no prosaic or practical purpose,” stated artist Tim Péwé. “In my work, I’m trying to practice some sort of ‘low level alchemy’, transforming reclaimed materials into something new, but nebulous at the same time."
Originally from New Mexico, Péwé has lived in Oregon, Florida and Michigan. As a young boy growing up in Michigan, Péwé would often haul salvaged materials home to create things out of it. This inventive artist continues to draw and create items out of a variety of mixed media.
Through the years, Péwé has been commissioned to create such works as kinetic art installations, inlaid marble works, furniture, and concrete sculptures.
Péwé holds a bachelor's degree in business and sociology. His works are shown regionally and has appeared in the books such as "Strange Michigan" and "Shed Working, the alternative workspace revolution." (UK).
